A potent, cask strength release from Laphroaig.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Laphroaig is famous for producing some of the smokiest Whisky in the world with a distinct flavour, in huge part influenced by the vicinity of the coast and the high moss content of its peat.

We’re talking about Whisky royalty right here, so it’s no wonder this is also the favourite Whisky of Prince Charles, who gave Laphroaig permission to use his royal warrant on all the bottles. Their core line up has no fewer than a dozen single malt drams plus a host of special releases and travel retail editions.

Everybody knows their 10 YO, one of Scotland’s most distinguished malts. This right here is his big, rugged brother. Laphroaig 10 YO Cask Strength is non chill-filtered and bottled at 57.8% ABV, which means you can enjoy the dram exactly as it was made. We recommend cooling it down with a bit of water though to soften the blow and allow for the release of the rich aroma of peat, spice and sea. It’s up to you to bring out the best in him.

This is definitely not a beginner dram. In fact, we would argue, this is such an intense and complex dram that only true Whisky connoisseurs can fully appreciate. Some say that good Whisky is like friendship: rich, warm and strong. Well, if that’s the case, you might have just found your best friend. With that said, it’s also up to him to bring the best out of you.

Angel
Angel,
My Islay starter. Peated, smoky, profound. You love it or hate it. And I love it!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Quite crazy how much better this is than the normal 10 year. Perfect woodspice, hot cherry notes, cola, mineral brine, all complimenting a very umami peatiness like bacon or grilled mushrooms.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Ok 10/10 for its uniqueness, flavor is wow the strongest burnt ashtray and rubber I’ve ever had. Very strong to nose as well but I find it delightful. I wouldn’t say it’s an everyday sipper but for the cold days in Minnesota after shoveling 6 inches of snow this will definitely be the drink to warm the soul.
 
Burt
Burt,
Delicious smoke, vanilla, caramel. Wonderful stuff!
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Love this Scotch for the right occasion. I can’t drink it everyday, but when I am in the mood for a party warming Scotch, this is my go to drink.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
If you like smoke, this Islay is the scotch for you. Smoke on the nose, super peaty finish. Nice burn. Not for everyone but I thoroughly enjoy a glass on the rocks. No more than 2 in one sitting.
 
James
James,
Too smokey for my taste...

Lisa
Lisa,
Smoky and nice. Just ok though
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
It has a very strong antiseptic smell and if you want that smell staying with you for a little while then this is the scotch for you. It definitely not a Scotch to my taste.
 
Michael
Michael,
Excellent scotch. Complex, smoky, peaty, delicious. Better than the regular 10!
 
Stephen
Stephen,
This is now my go-to scotch for a strong dose of smoke and peat. If you are reticent because if its cask strength, don’t be, the 10 yr Cask Strength is shockingly smooth.
 
John
John,
One of my favorites. Smokey, peaty, a touch of sweetness to round it out. I enjoy the aroma almost as much as the taste.

DODSTIL
DODSTIL,
This is Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and it's the most recent scotch I have tried in many years. It's 116 proof and I'm glad I followed the instructions on the bottle because this is a very powerful scotch whisky,(I'm a light weight), but I like and want to experience other whiskies.
 
Thaine
Thaine,
My favorite whisky. Smooth and smokey. As the copy says, "Like kissing a mermaid who just ate BBQ."
 
Josh
Josh,
Very strong smoke, oak, and peat. Really enjoy sipping.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Got the smoke but shy of more flavorful Laphroaig selections. Good in a pinch and in most bars I venture into now.
 
Joe
Joe,
Very smoky and peaty but has a strong great after taste that's last a long time
 
Gus
Gus,
Perfect at quiet time or with a cigar.

A wonderful, smokey Islay, more subtle then something like an Ardbeg.

Smoother than the quarter cask, but still with edge to enjoy.

Very strong and peat-forward
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Too intense, but very good.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Laphroaig always has great Scotch. This one is smokey and has a lot of phenols with a bit of a meaty salty taste. Not tasting any vanilla.

It is smooth but I am not partial to the smokey, peatey taste.
 
Matthew

Fresh,oily,much flavor.
 
Ty
Ty,
Exceptionally good. One of the best whisky bargains around. Try Laphroaig 10 once to compare to the Cask Strength. Spend the extra $15, experiment with water, and never look back.

Aaron
Aaron,
Ok, it's like smoking a pipe, while stranded at sea, in the middle of a rain storm, with seaweed smacking you in the face. But in a good way. Really good!

Smoky goodness, like a warm night campfire with marshmallows.

Obvious peaty influence that finishes nice with water added. Smokey with a medium warming.

I am not much of a fan of the medicinal taste as much as I thought I was.
 
Reginald
Reginald,
Akin to sipping liquid funk. Not to my taste.
 
Richard
Richard,
I just adore cask strength. Really let's you see the whisky evolve with water. It's classic Laphroaig with smoke, Band-Aids,and then cherries and fruit with water. Really good. Batch 007
 
Roger
Roger,
Bottled perfection. Love it.
 
Chris
Chris,
Probably the greatest introduction to Islay whiskies on the market. It does punch you in the face, but once your olfactory senses are used to it, opens up and reveals the other flavors in its profile.
 
Chrisman
Chrisman,
It's got the peat I like. But I like Lagavulin 16-year-old better.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Fruity. Next to no bite.

It's like being hit in the teeth with a glowing log from last night's campfire on a damp autumn morning and then that log quickly becomes your new best friend.
